“I just wanted to say a quick thank you for organizing the calls, supplying the agendas, providing resources and the wrap ups.  These resources and talks have been really helpful. Once again, thanks for all that you are doing.”

Evergreen Public Schools

“The COVID-19 pandemic has been extremely difficult on families, students and for school district personnel. Being able to share information, challenges and successes has created a community of communication professionals that is closer and more helpful to each other than ever. Thank you ESD 112 for all you do.”

Longview Public Schools

“I have found the regional coordination of our communication efforts to be invaluable. The tools developed for regional use were collaborative, timely and perfect for addressing communications challenges and needs.”

Camas School District

“After publishing our annual report, I was excited and blown away at all Communications helped us accomplish. Our work simply could not be done without your incredible talent, guidance and contributions. You continuously make things better and take our ideas to the next level.”

Prevent Coalition

“As a communicator in a smaller district in the region, sharing the work of creating great messages, translating documents, and anticipating questions we needed to be able to answer during the COVID-19 pandemic was a huge support. The shared resources were much better than we could have created working by ourselves, and have garnered praise from our school board, district leadership, and district families.”

Washougal School District

Bond & Levy

Bond & Levy Informational Campaigns and Materials

We have 50+ years of experience under our belts when it comes to helping school districts communicate the importance of voter approved school funding measures. School levies and capital bonds are critical as districts work to bridge the gap between what the state pays for school and the actual cost to operate and fund programs and provide adequate facilities for students.

Our team of communications managers have helped countless districts build robust informational campaigns and materials that help their local tax payers understand the complex finance picture, as well as why local funding is essential.

Our creative approach and our proven process guides districts from the initial planning phases all the way through to election day. We know how to talk about and present informational strategies and materials for Educational Maintenance and Operations Levies, Technology Levies, and Capital Facilities Bonds.

In addition to our direct services for districts, we’ve also developed an informational campaign that has been used statewide. The landing page and social media graphics are available in both English and Spanish.
